AOL license Sonic CD and DVD burning technology

Sonic Solutions and America Online (AOL) have signed a licensing agreement that allows AOL to incorporate Sonic's CD-audio, CD-ROM and DVD-ROM burning technologies into their interactive and web-based applications and services.
MusicNet on AOL, a premium music subscription service, will include the Sonic AuthorScript Software Developer's Kit for CD and DVD burning. Support for CD burning in MusicNet on AOL allows members who browse and purchase music tracks from the vast MusicNet on AOL catalogue to burn them, safely and legally, directly to CD.
Kevin Conroy, SVP and General Manager, AOL Entertainment, said: "As part of our ongoing effort to make online music mainstream, it is important for us to be able to give members a wide range of options for discovering, experiencing and owning music.
"We heard from members that CD burning was an important part of their desired digital music experience and we wanted to be sure that it was seamlessly integrated into our first digital music subscription service. We chose Sonic's technology for our CD and DVD burn engine to enable CD burning in our new MusicNet on AOL service because they offer a proven solution that supports a range of recording and playback devices."
